BBCode Problems

Postby Indigo » 06/04/2017 10:23 PM

"Problem" may be an exaggeration. Nuisance, perhaps.

When I attempt to insert tags in a post by clicking one of the buttons above the text field, and I have not already selected what I want inside the tags, they will appear in a different place from where the cursor was when I clicked the button. Sometimes they'll just appear on the line above where they were supposed to, other times they'll select a random block of existing text and do weird things to my post if I don't notice in time. This started happening around the time the wordcount thing was added so maybe they're related somehow? I don't know anything about coding, or if this is happening to anyone else for that matter.

I'm not a gangster tonight
Don't wanna be a bad guy
I'm just a loner, baby
And now you've gotten in my way

I can't decide whether you should live or die
Oh you'll probably go to heaven
Please don't hang your head and cry
No wonder why my heart feels dead inside
It's cold and hard and petrified
Lock the doors and close the blinds
We're going for a ride

I've had that issue recently too. I'd always just assumed the problem was with my laptop, which has a tendency to... be kinda funny about selection anyway, but this specific issue is pretty recent. If you're having it too, then... I dunno what it might be, but I am glad to hear it's not just me XD;

I want to love you but I don't know how.

This may or may not be related, but I've noticed that my posts keep coming out with random page breaks in them? Like I've accidentally bumped enter while typing. It's specific to this forum, so I thought I'd mention it.

Huh, I've tried replicating this but with no luck :'l Is it specific to a browser (also for collecting info, do you use any plug-ins that affect the text field?) or does it happen on all of them? Also if there's any examples of posts with the line breaks, link me? (Or screenshots? Both? Idk xD I remember I couldn't work out why it was misbehaving for crow)

Usually I can catch the linebreaks as I'm proofreading my post, but it seems like I type a paragraph, then later notice it's like randomly inserted a line break? The linebreak appears in the text box - both quick reply and post reply - not after I actually make the post.

Example: 'Well' is broken into a new paragraph, but should not have been.

Google Chrome (latest), win10

It seems to be specific to Chrome. I don't have any extensions that would interfere unless something very weird is going on. I also don't have this problem on other websites that use similar buttons for formatting tags so ??

I tried everything people are having trouble with and also had no problems--but it's worth saying I'm running a very old version of Chrome.
In the morning when I wake,
And the sun is coming through,
Oh, you fill my lungs with sweetness,
And you fill my head with you.

Shall I write it in a letter?
Shall I try to get it down?
Oh, you fill my head with pieces
Of a song I can't get out.

Can I take it to a morning
Where the fields are painted gold,
And the trees are filled with memories
Of the feelings never told?

When the evening pulls the sun down,
And the day is almost through,
Oh, the whole world it is sleeping,
But my world is you.


Can I be close to you?
